One of my big objectives for 2013 is to lose weight and get more physically fit. My getting back to the gym has been somewhat compromised with my husband’s elbow injury. He is really unable to do a whole lot, especially when the kids are home. In the meantime, I have joined MyFitnessPal to start counting calories and keep track of what I eat. Since starting to at least track my calories, I have lost 2 pounds in less than two weeks. I have never counted calories before and am amazed at how quickly they add up, and how many calories some food items have.
Health and Fitness Items
I have come across many health and fitness items at Best Buy that would be very helpful while on my quest to become physically fit. The bonus is that there is a 20% coupon offer on they Health & Fitness items right now!
One of those items that I would love to have is the Fitbit Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker. I have heard a lot of great things about Fitbit and think this would help encourage me to get up and move around more since it tracks your activity. Once I tend to get in work mode I tend to really absorb myself in it and do not get up much to take breaks and move around. I think a lot of my weight has come from being more sedentary as a result. This Fitbit tracks steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed and even the quality of your sleep. It syncs with your computer then so you can track your progress.
I have a very old scale that has never even worked properly. I saw at Best Buy there is a Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale. This seems to be a super smart scale. It keeps track of your weight, BMI and body fat. It even recognizes up to 8 users and allows you upload your weight automatically to the Fitbit Web site for monitoring. I love that this also has the body fat calculator on it since your body fat does not always coincide with your weight.
Now through February 11th you can get an additional 20% off Health and Fitness products and Small Appliances at Best Buy. These coupons are valid for in-store only, so be sure to print them before you go shopping. Also, there are two different coupons, so print they both or the one that you need to take with you.
